There's no reason to get sucked in by scarlet-hued shakes with scary-high calorie counts. Toss a few no-guilt ingredients in the blender, and voilà! Red velvety goodness...
1 packet hot cocoa mix with 20 - 25 calories (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
1 tbsp. sugar-free French vanilla powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate)
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 drops red food coloring
1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1/4 cup light chocolate ice cream
1 1/2 cups crushed ice or 8 - 12 ice cubes
1/4 cup Fat Free Reddi-wip
In a tall glass, combine cocoa mix, powdered creamer, and chocolate chips. Add 2 tbsp. very hot water and stir until mostly dissolved. Thoroughly stir in food coloring.
Transfer mixture to a blender. Add soymilk, ice cream, and ice. Blend at high speed until smooth.
Pour into the tall glass, top with Reddi-wip, and enjoy!
